This hol­i­day sea­son, As­to­ria Palawan brings us with an­other ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence the warm spirit of Christ­mas.

Dubbed as “Paskuhan sa As­to­ria,” the re­sort fea­tures var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties with Sim­bang Gabi masses in­clud­ing the choir led car­ols, acous­tic band, bub­ble shows, and en­ter­tain­ing per­for­mances of the re­sort’s dance troupe.

The first in As­to­ria, the fes­tiv­i­ties started on De­cem­ber 15 up to Jan­uary 6, 2019, said Gen­eral Man­ager Jo­ce­lyn M. Suarez.

“This is open to all. You will find a lot of ‘in­sta­grammable spots’, and ac­tiv­i­ties for the chil­dren,” Suarez said.

The re­sort has sched­uled trips go­ing to their lo­ca­tion from the City Proper and they are of­fer­ing it for Php 300 round trip, which in­cludes a con­sum­able of Php 100 for the food or to pur­chase any items be­ing sold. But for those who have cars, they will only pay the con­sum­able Php 100.

“We would like to in­vite ev­ery­one to please come, see, and ex­pe­ri­ence As­to­ria Palawan,” Suarez said.

The re­sort will also show­case parol-mak­ing con­test us­ing re­cy­clable ma­te­ri­als, which is one of the ad­vo­ca­cies of the re­sort in pro­tect­ing the en­vi­ron­ment.

As­to­ria Palawan has been ac­tively in­volved Com­mu­nity-Based Sus­tain­able Tourism, in­volv­ing var­i­ous stake­hold­ers in Palawan to pro­mote lo­cal prod­ucts with­out charg­ing them.

“We wel­come them with­out any fee para mabenta kung ano meron sila at mak­i­lala ang prod­ucts nila,” Suarez said.

“It is one of the ad­vo­ca­cies of As­to­ria,” said Suarez adding, “We want to share our bless­ings. We want to be in­volved with the com­mu­nity.”

Hailed as the Num­ber 1 in Trip Ad­vi­sor among 54 ho­tels and re­sorts in Puerto Princesa, As­to­ria Palawan strives to cater the de­mands and needs of the lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional tourists, to en­hanc­ing and im­prov­ing their ser­vices.

“We want to make a dif­fer­ence here in Palawan. And we re­ally want to make As­to­ria to be known,” Suarez said.
